Movies like this are the reason why I love movies.

As Summer, Zooey Deschanel is an enchanting, blue-eyed mixture of nearness and distance. You can see why Tom loves her, even as she stomps on his heart.

It's very smooth and well done; Marc Webb clearly has a solid visual eye and natural sense of pacing.

You've seen this movie before (just usually with a fakey big-kiss ending; extra points here for the blunt honesty about breakups) but this one is just right for Right Now.

(500) Days of Summer is as close to perfect as a movie gets. A highly subjective claim? Sure, but so are all movie reviews, and this is hardly the time to get into that argument.

Zany visuals and spirited performances makes 500 Days of Summer an entertaining chronicle of the making and breaking of a modern secular relationship.

An endearing, well-acted film that takes a conventional premise and turns it into something wonderfully unconventional.

Sweet and cute, but capable of so much more.

Hopefully writers Neustadter and Weber have already got another project in the works.

This is the movie The Breakup was advertised to be.

Gimmicky love story that's not saved by its bittersweet ending. Acting is more than just cooing with your eyes. It seemed like 500 days allright. Paul Chambers, CNN.

The film's bruised yet clear-eyed romanticism is refreshing to find in a genre that often settles for something less than truthful or passionate.

... it does a nice job of charting the rise and fall of a relationship with heart, soul and a recognition that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.

We have been trained by Hollywood to react a certain way to a certain kind of movie and 500 Days of Summer seeks to un-train us through shock therapy.

Abound conventions and the occasional nugget of overwrought wit threaten, but fail, to cripple the leads' revelatory sincerity.

Una irresistible comedia romántica que desafía algunas convenciones del género, gracias a un tratamiento fresco y original, una deliciosa banda sonora y dos protagonistas perfectos.

The two leads are as quirky and likable as the movie itself.

A kind of Woody Allen comedy but without the jokes. Lots of cultural signifiers to make ivy league couples on a date feel at home, but totally lacking in substance.

A near perfect genre defying representation of relationships, infatuation, and getting over the first real love of your life...
